Nephilim sons of God?
Angels? Giants of Genesis 6:4?
- A common
belief which we share is that the "sons of
of men" were fallen angels.
Why did God
send the judgment of the Flood in the days
of Noah? The strange events recorded in
Genesis 6 were understood by the ancient
rabbinical sources, as well as the Septuagint
translators, as referring to fallen angels
procreating weird hybrid offspring with
human women-known as the
was far more than simply a historical issue,
the unique events leading to the Flood are
a prerequisite to understanding the prophetic
implications of our Lord's predictions regarding
His Second Coming. This is believed
to have happened both before the Flood and
after the flood. In Israel at the
time of David, and before this when the
Hebrews were scouting the land - there were
tribes of these Nephilim - Goliath the giant
of Gath is one example. Early
Church fathers also understood this to be
the case. It appears that these fallen
angels were active all over the world. These
bizarre giants living on the earth are also
echoed in the legends and myths of nearly
every ancient culture. The ancient
Greeks, the Egyptians, the Hindus, the South
Sea Islanders, the American Indians, and
most all the others have these legends.
word Nephelim (plural of nephel) (Nephilim)
literally means "rejects". The Hebrew plural for Nephites would be "Nephi'im".

this plan to interrupt Abraham's "seed into motion, as
soon as it was made known that the Seed of the Woman
(Christ) was to come through ABRAHAM.

act of rushing; act of breaking in; intrusion, raid;

probably Satan's first attempt to
prevent the coming of the "Seed of the woman" foretold in

The idea that the spirits of dead
giants (off spring of demons mating with earth women) inhabit the
underworld (place beyond the veil) is supported here:
segregated from the heroes, the old-time giants who entered the
grave in full battle dress, their swords placed under their heads
and their shields covering their bones, those heroes who spread
terror through the land of the living. The Message

- "And he did not know that giants are there, and
that her guests are in the depths of hell" (Douay-Rheims Version,
- "A man that shall wander out of the way of

The book of Jasher, which is mentioned in the
Bible in Joshua 10:13 and 2 Samuel 1.18 says, "After the fallen
angels went into the daughters of men, [then] the sons of men taught
the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order to
provoke the Lord" (4:18). The Book of Enoch says that fallen
angels not only merged their DNA with women, but that "they began to
sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish" (7:5; 6)

as it was made known that the Seed of the woman was to
come through ABRAHAM, there must have been another
irruption, as recorded in Genesis 6:4 (see above), "and also
after that" (that is to say, after the days of
Noah, more than 500 years after the first irruption). The
aim of the enemy was to occupy Canaan in advance of
Abraham, and so to contest its occupation by his seed. For,
when Abraham entered Canaan, we read (Genesis 12:6)
"the Canaanite was then (that is to say, already)
in the land."

see two more attempts by Satan to interfere with

the late 1950’s, during road construction in

were uncovered. At the sites the leg bones
were measured to be 120 cms (47.24 inches).

In an ancient text of the
Jews, we read an astonishing description of some
of these gigantic Amorites whom the Israelites
conquered. In Buber's Tanhuma,
Devarim 7, the text tells us of a Rabbi Johnanan

Hadrian. This event occurred in about A.D. 135,
soon after the Roman victory in the Bar Kochba
war, when the Jews rebelled against the Romans.
The text reads:
"The wicked emperor Hadrian, who
conquered Jerusalem, boasted, 'I have
conquered Jerusalem with great power.' Rabbi
Johanan ben Zakkai said to him, 'Do not
boast. Had it not been the will of Heaven,
you would not have conquered it.' Rabbi
Johanan then took Hadrian into a cave and
showed him the bodies of Amorites who were
buried there. One of them measured eighteen
cubits [approximately 30 feet] in height. He
said, 'When we were deserving, such men were
defeated by us, but now, because of our
sins, you have defeated us'" (quoted in

"Sons of God
were fallen angels and not aliens"
|Some have claimed that the
Nephilim, or the "sons of God," both mentioned
in Genesis 6:2-4, were aliens. This is a wild extension
of a common view that the "sons of God" who
married the "daughters of men" were fallen
angels, and that the Nephilim were products of those
"Sons of God"
is clearly used of angels in Job 38:7 Orig KJV: "When
the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God
shouted for joy?". The Septuagint (LXX)
here translates "sons of God" as "angels
of God." This need not mean that evil angels, or
demons, actually cohabited with women. Jesus made it
clear that angels do not engage in sexual activities, at
least not angels in heaven. Matthew 22:30 Orig KJV:
"For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor
are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in
heaven." Nevertheless, evil angels on earth could have used the
bodies of ungodly men, by demonic possession, to achieve
their evil purpose of producing an evil generation of
people (Genesis 6:12).
There are other
reasonable suggestions as to the identity of the
"sons of God" and the Nephilim. Interestingly,
the word Nephilim is only used here and in Numbers
13:33, where it clearly refers to the descendants of
Anak, who were big people, but still people.
Furthermore, "sons of God" is not used
exclusively of angels -- the children of Israel are
called "the sons of the living God" in Hosea
1:10 (see also Psalm 73:15; 80:17).
32-33 Original KJV:
- 32 And
they brought up an evil report of the
land which they had
unto the children of Israel,
saying, The land, through which
we have gone to search it, is a
land that eateth up the inhabitants
thereof; and all the people
that we saw in it are men
- 33 And
there we saw the giants, the sons of
Anak, which come
giants: and we were in our own
sight as grasshoppers, and so
we were in their sight.
The Anakim: This
was another name for the Watchers. It means
“the descendants of Anak”, or Enoch, Cain’s
son. Though it was said that a flood had
been sent to destroy them, there were still
entire cities of Anakim in Canaan as late as
the time of Moses. And Jewish chronicler
Josephus states that even in his own day it
was not uncommon for people to dig up
gigantic skeletal remains.
A champion named
Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine
camp ... Then the Philistine said, "This day I defy
the ranks of Israel! Give me a man and let us fight each
both in 2 Samuel 21:16-22 and I Chronicles
20:4-8, we discover that Goliath had four
relatives, also giants:
whose bronze spearhead weighed three hundred
shekels (more than seven pounds) and who said
he would kill David;
(or Sippai), another descendant of Rapha (the
(the brother of Goliath), whose spear shaft
resembled a weaver's rod; and
4) a huge man (unnamed in
the text) with six fingers on each hand and six toes on
Goliath and these four were
all descendants of Rapha in Gath, "and they fell at
the hands of David and his men" (2 Samuel 21:22 and I
David apparently knew in
facing Goliath that these other four might also have to be
reckoned with. So David prepared himself to take down all
five giants, one stone per giant, if need be. The Bible
tells us that the other four did fight against David and
his army in later battles, and all four were defeated.
David's stone was a bullet
of faith, launched from his sling at probably 100 to 120
mph, and with sufficient momentum to break through
Goliath's skull bones. The boastful giant never knew what
hit him. The text indicates that David ran toward Goliath
as he launched his shot, thus adding to its momentum. We
can assume from David's success in killing both bear and
lion that he was a fast runner (Goliath could never have
caught him in open field running) and an accurate shot,
probably able to put a stone into a 3- or 4-inch circle
consistently from a distance of 20 or 30 feet (an accuracy
comparable to that of today's pro baseball pitchers).
Rulers in ancient Egypt
and Mesopotamia often proclaimed themselves as
"sons of God" to enhance their power and
prestige. So, another view with much support is that the
"sons of God" were power-hungry rulers and
despots, who, in their hunger for power and influence,
took many wives in polygamy. They, and their offspring,
through tyranny, became "mighty men." (Nimrod
was described as a "mighty one" in Genesis
So, there is no need to
resort to fanciful suggestions involving aliens to
understand this passage of Scripture.
Angels do not marry
yet enlightening statement about angel
marriages was made by Jesus which was
reported in Matthew 22:30; "For
in the resurrection they neither marry, nor
are given in marriage, but are as the angels
of God in heaven." Here we
read a statement from Jesus saying that
angels do not get married. A possible
explanation for this is that the "sons
of God" were the descendants of
Seth, and "the daughters of men"
were of the godless Cainites.
Remember, God later spoke of the people of
Israel as His ‘firstborn son" (Exodus
4:22), and Moses called the people of Israel
"children of the Lord your God"
Therefore, when they took wives it was an
unholy alliance between Sethites (God's
people) and Cainites (idol worshipers).
Also, the word "wives" seems to
indicate more that one and therefore a
suggests taking more than one wife

(1.) Hebrew Nephilim,
meaning "violent" or "causing to
fall" (Gen. 6:4). These were the violent tyrants of
those days, those who fell upon others. The word may
also be derived from a root signifying
"wonder," and hence "monsters" or
"prodigies." In Num. 13:33 this name is given
to a Canaanitish tribe, a race of large stature,
"the sons of Anak." The Revised Version, in
these passages, simply transliterates the original, and
(2.) Hebrew rephaim, a
race of giants (Deut. 3:11) who lived on the east of
Jordan, from whom Og was descended. They were probably
the original inhabitants of the land before the
immigration of the Canaanites. They were conquered by
Chedorlaomer (Gen. 14:5), and their territories were
promised as a possession to Abraham (15:20). The Anakim,
Zuzim, and Emim were branches of this stock.
In Job 26:5 (R.V.,
"they that are deceased;" marg., "the
shades," the "Rephaim") and Isa. 14:9
this Hebrew word is rendered (A.V.) "dead." It
means here "the shades," the departed spirits
in Sheol. In Sam. 21:16, 18, 20, 33, "the
giant" is (A.V.) the rendering of the singular form
ha raphah, which may possibly be the name of the
father of the four giants referred to here, or of the
founder of the Rephaim. The Vulgate here reads "Arapha,"
whence Milton (in Samson Agonistes) has borrowed the
name "Harapha." (See also 1 Chron. 20:5, 6, 8;
Deut. 2:11, 20; 3:13; Josh. 15:8, etc., where the word
is similarly rendered "giant.") It is rendered
"dead" in (A.V.) Ps. 88:10; Prov. 2:18; 9:18;
21:16: in all these places the Revised Version marg. has
"the shades." (See also Isa. 26:14.)
(3.) Hebrew 'Anakim
(Deut. 2:10, 11, 21; Josh. 11:21, 22; 14:12, 15; called
"sons of Anak," Num. 13:33; "children of
Anak," 13:22; Josh. 15:14), a nomad race of giants
descended from Arba (Josh. 14:15), the father of Anak,
that dwelt in the south of Palestine near Hebron (Gen.
23:2; Josh. 15:13). They were a Cushite tribe of the
same race as the Philistines and the Egyptian shepherd
kings. David on several occasions encountered them (2
Sam. 21:15-22). From this race sprung Goliath (1 Sam.
(4.) Hebrew 'emin, a
warlike tribe of the ancient Canaanites. They were
"great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims"
(Gen. 14:5; Deut. 2:10, 11).
(5.) Hebrew Zamzummim
(q.v.), Deut. 2:20 so called by the Amorites.
(6.) Heb. gibbor (Job
16:14), a mighty one, i.e., a champion or hero. In its
plural form (gibborim) it is rendered "mighty
men" (2 Sam. 23:8-39; 1 Kings 1:8; 1 Chr. 11:9-47;
29:24.) The band of six hundred whom David gathered
around him when he was a fugitive were so designated.
They were divided into three divisions of two hundred
each, and thirty divisions of twenty each. The captains
of the thirty divisions were called "the
thirty," the captains of the two hundred "the
three," and the captain over the whole was called
"chief among the captains" (2 Sam. 23:8). The
sons born of the marriages mentioned in Gen. 6:4 are
also called by this Hebrew name.
Genesis 6: 1-8 Original KJV:
1 And it came to pass,

daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became
mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Hildegard of Bingen
wrote about fallen angels in 1150 AD. She states they
aligned themselves to the dark (negative) instead of to the light
(positive-God per the Bible).
non-canonical tradition says that God's Angels swarmed down
and killed the remaining Nephilim...
God seeing his creation on the brink of destruction acted to save man
from this treachery, and he set out to wipe corrupt man (and beast) from the
face of the earth. God did not do this so as to punish man but to save him from
an evil he had no way of understanding. God saved Noah and his family and man
began anew. As did the evil.
But it was the unauthorized act of revelation that outraged the archangels,
and it was that act which God punished. "I shall restore the Earth, so that not
all the sons of men shall be destroyed through the mystery which the Watchers
made known." Divinely commanded, the obedient Watchers swept down and defeated
their brothers, whose punishment was to watch the death of their children before
being themselves imprisoned in the mountains and deserts of the Earth until
Judgment Day, when they will be cast into the lake of eternal fire. (Azazel is
the only Watcher whose burial place is believed to be known: under a heap of
stones at the foot of the cliff of Haradan, in what is now the Sinai, where,
regarded as a demon, he received every year the scapegoat driven into the desert
with its burden of Israel's sins. --Alternately, he is sometimes said to have
hurled himself into the sky and become the constellation Orion.) God sends the
prophet Enoch to scold them in their imprisonment, saying that as spiritual
beings they were never intended to have wives as mortal men do (of course, their
creator could presumably have seen to it that they felt no longing for sex or
love, but he apparently neglected to do so) and even scorning the knowledge they
shared with humanity - "You were in heaven, but its secret had not been revealed
to you and a worthless mystery you knew." - although the Four Archangels'
concern surely contradicts this mocking remark. Other Apocryphal books say that
even now they are held and tortured in the terrible Fifth Heaven, set aside for
just this purpose. (I Enoch XIII describes the Watchers/Grigori as
stricken mute with guilt and terror after Enoch's reproof, and indeed in II
Enoch the Grigori imprisoned in the Fifth Heaven are voiceless giants.) The
world, meanwhile, is swept clean in a great earthquake and flood, destroying the
Nephilim's lands, to which many writers
trace the worldwide legends of a catastrophic inundation.
But the Watchers' teaching continued to influence humankind in the ages after
the Deluge, even though now condemned and studied in secret. In Jubilees
VIII:1-5, Kainam, Noah's grandson, "came upon a writing which men of old had
carved on a rock...it contained the teaching of the Watchers, in accordance with
which they used to observe the omens of the sun and moon and all the signs of
heaven. And he wrote it down and said nothing about it..." fearing punishment
from Noah, who blamed the Watchers for the Flood and constantly warned his clan
against any dealings with them or their descent. (Must have been one blessed
huge rock, unless the Watchers' skills included micro-engraving.) This is
especially notable because Kainam is the brother of Chesed, father of Ur, who is
said in the Apocrypha to have founded the famous Chaldean city of that name.
"And [they] grew up and lived in Ur of the Chaldees," says Jubilees
(XI:7-8) of Serug and Nahor, Kainam's descendants, "and worshipped
idols...and [Nahor's] father instructed him in the learning of the Chaldees, how
to divine and foretell the future from the signs of heaven." It's most tempting
to conclude that Kainam's grandchildren through generations inherited and
studied the written record he had made from the stone; that the legendary wisdom
of the Chaldeans, which amazes history, had descended to them from the Watchers
The Nephilim - and, some say, their
children, the Elioud/Eljo - were physically exterminated by the avenging angel
horde. But, though their half-mortal bodies could be slain, their half-angel
souls could not, nor could they be held in chains. They remain on the earth,
wandering at will, and though chaotic and destructive will not be punished for
their deeds until the Final Judgment "in which the great age will be brought to
an end". Occult tradition holds that now and then a Nephilim spirit will incarnate in human form
(the souls of those who quit the body violently, it's said, are most pure...).
The Apocrypha claim the disembodied Nephilim are the origin of demons, and accuse
them of many crimes. Jubilees places the blame for the Flood squarely
upon the fornication of the Watchers and the iniquity and bloodshed of the Nephilim. "And now the giants who were born
from souls and flesh will be called evil spirits upon the earth," charges I
Enoch XV-XVI, "From the day of...the slaughter and destruction of the giant
Nephilim, the mighty ones of the earth,
the great famous ones, the spirits that have gone out from their souls as from
the flesh will destroy without judgment." Even the mortal women who are their
mothers are cursed to become sirens and demonesses. In Jubilees X:1-6,
Noah's sons beg him to protect their children from "unclean demons" who are
"leading astray, blinding and killing" them; Noah, petitioning God to "let not
wicked spirits rule over [my grandchildren] and destroy them", adds, "Thou
knowest what thy Watchers, the fathers of these spirits, did in my day..."
